Rich C. (Guitar)
Rich started playing guitar in high school and never looked back. Studying music briefly in college, he realized the real place to learn to play was on the stage. Rich’s influences are eclectic – “In my home growing up, you heard it all, from Opera to Heavy Metal and everything in between – I was very lucky to be exposed to so many genres of music”. Some of Rich’s guitar heroes include Neal Schon, Steve Vai, Eddie Van Halen and Joe Bonamassa, as well as veterans like Larry Carlton. “I spent years on the Long Island club scene in both original and cover bands – but when I got the call to join “BACK IN TIME” I jumped at it. Huey Lewis was the soundtrack of the eighties – and I am very fortunate to be playing alongside the talented group of musicians in this band.”

Mike Q. (Saxman) - Saxophone player \ Vocals Mike is a professional saxophone player and vocalist born and raised on Long Island, NY. He was handed his first saxophone at the age of 8 only because Sam Ash
didn’t rent bassoons (Dad’s first choice for Mike). The rest they say, is history. During his high school years, Mike lied about his age and played his first professional gigs with some of Long Island's finest local bands where the exposure led to a career as a freelance studio musician that continues to this day. He was a staple in the Long Island local club seen for years playing at
numerous clubs, concert halls, catering facilities, and regional events. Mike's career culminated in the early 90's when he performed for 5 years with the Late Show Band... then the babies came. After a brief hiatus (when Mike focused on a successful career in real estate and parenting), he is now back at it in a big way as a member of numerous national touring acts that include the
Doobie Others, the John Fogerty Tribute Project, Streetfighter, and now Back in Time.
